This project was just a mo-hair's breath away from becoming a What Was I
drinkThinking. When I embarked on this cape, I was so in love with both sides of this wool and mohair yardage, I just couldn't bear to line it. So I made the questionable decision to bind each and every seam with some of that loaves-n-fishes Betsey Johnson floral jersey, shown above.
And the garment drooped and sagged, and called me names, and looked crazyface. So I ripped out every. Single. SEAM. (Including every seam of the wool itself, which I actually did not need to do.)
But I soldiered on and I'm glad I did... it's one of Ruggy's favorites! I LOVE IT WHEN I MAKE SOMETHING THE RUGSTER LOVES! You can see her today, in full, up on the MSN blog... and tomorrow, I'll show you what's lurking underneath: another technicolor floral jammie that could be Betsey Johnson's Canadian cousin.
Though I don't know if a technicolored floral ponte could really lurk if it tried. Like an elephant trying to tiptoe.
